About the Book:
In the center of the nest lay one perfect egg, the color of a spring sky. The father robin sat on a branch nearby, guarding his family. Tressa spotted raccoon tracks below and a blue jay eyeing the nest. "Gran, how are we going to keep the egg safe?" "We'll have to leave that one to the Creator," Gran said. Robins have built a nest on the window ledge at Grandmother's house! Tressa is thrilled-and concerned. What will happen to the sky-blue egg laid by the mother robin? As more eggs appear, Tressa witnesses the daily drama of the robins' nest and learns how God cares for all creatures. Besides watching the birds, there are Easter eggs to color. Ant there is a very special story to hear-a tale of long ago about one small bird with a very big heart. How did the robin get its red breast? Tressa is about to find out as Gran tells her the story of the Easter robin. Brought to life with colorful, tender illustrations, The Legend of the Easter Robin will capture and teach your child about compassion and faith.

This hardcover book is 32 pages long and is full of color and wonder. The Legend of the Easter Robin taught my sons as to how the robin got its red breast. This is a great book to read to your children around the time of Easter to remind them as to why we celebrate Easter. Seeing Tressa coloring Easter eggs shows us that it's okay for us to have our own Easter traditions.
My boys loved the colorful pages and cute puppy that was on a lot of the pages. The illustrations really make the story come to life. The cover of the book immediately caught my eye. The book is beautifully written. I really enjoyed reading this book to them. Read this book with your family on Easter Day. :)
At the end of the book, the author shares with us a more detailed version of the old Pennsylvania Dutch Tale.
